A bar feeding machine, also known as a bar feed, is a piece of optional support device that allows bar stock to be automatically put into a CNC lathe, significantly enhancing productivity. With a lathe adapter, the feeder is attached to the headstock and filled with bars, which are transported into the work area. The YouTube video provides an overview of a smart 320 bar feeder.
The most fundamental function of a bar feeder is to keep an operator from continually monitoring and feeding goods into a machine. When using a bar feeder, the operator is free to perform other activities.
Furthermore, because loading is now automated, each operation may be done faster.
The smart 320 bar feeder is an entry-level machine with a 320ml capacity, with a design that differs from more rigid bar feeding machines. The control unit of the bar feeding machine is a standard handheld unit with buttons, although an option for touchscreen control exists. The internals follow the same design as all the bar feeders with no compromise in quality. Although the smart 320 bar feeder’s capacity cannot be extended, it’s a great choice for those seeking an entry-level bar feeder that boosts efficiency.
